Fishing for Ostriches

See if you can reel in an ostrich too!

Two week old ostrich chick takes a wrong turn while out for walkies and can't find dad.

It doesn't take much to get these 1 year old chicks excited.  After about 2 minutes they realize they have no idea why they're excited in the first place.


This pretty girl arrived along with Jesus on Christmas Eve and has been called "Mary" ever since. She loves attention and to be hand fed.

Gorgeous George

George is as big as they get.  Ten feet tall and 350 lbs, this handsome boy loves to display to the ladies.

These chicks are just a few weeks old and already almost as big as adult chickens. They love kids and to be fed by hand.
